    re: Which religion will stand its ground against the gay agenda? [W:743]

    But we are born this way? How could anyone hate our behavior when we are just people alike? I would like to note that I am in the most committed relationship I have ever been in through my whole life up to now, with my current boyfriend. Which I would like to include that he is Catholic and almost no one objects or even disagrees with our love. The numbers of people who disagree or hate homosexuality are decreasing in numbers so fast that eventually it will be more rare to be homophobic than homosexual.

    Since you don't have Islam listed, I chose the Roman Catholics.

    I think that the LDS church will always have the same stand on this subject. There are some differences between the blacks receiving the priesthood and gays. God has been very clear on His standing on this situation through scripture. The church won't give in to the social pressure. But I do know that the church itself has many gay members. And if the individual isn't a practicing gay they are able to hold positions of leadership within the church. But the church will never change their views on SSM.

    Any that do lack Christian love.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    What demands, exactly?

    I am not aware of gay people making any demands on any church. I am aware of internal disagreements in churches on gay people, and I am aware of gay people making demands for equality of their supposedly secular government.

    But you're gonna have to show me what the hell gay people have ever demanded of a church, because I see nothing.

    Yes, God has made it very clear how he feels about a lot of outdated things, such as quoted in Leviticus. What would you call social pressure? People begging for rights to be accepted as who they are without being told that God hates their way of life? I thought Christianity was all about love thy neighbor and everyone is the same beautiful person that God crafted in his vision. So perhaps God at one point may have had more restrictions, but isn't that what Christianity is about? Forgiveness and renewal through Jesus Christ? It seems to me that the church is only trying to tiptoe around the topic of homosexuality by allowing gay members, but not fully accepting and acknowledging them. It is, though, an inspiration to hear about so many churches beginning to open up to it around the world and in our own backyard.

    Caved in or finally understood that we are all God's children and that God wanted them to stop the crap and start promoting families?

    Honestly, if the Bible is true and there will be an "end" to life on Earth, I don't think any man-made church will be intact. I think there will be followers that are scattered amongst many of them, but no one church (as in the man-made name of a church group) that remains.

    Now, now. Quite the mudslinging. That goes for everyone.
